FIG. 7. Charge distribution of micelle-bound aS. A and B, top and bottom view of the molecular surface of micelle-bound aS (average structure; Fig. 4, C-E) color-coded by electrostatic potential as depicted. The predominantly unstructured tail of aS is shown to contrast its highly acidic nature with the repeat region of aS. Electrostatic potential was calculated with APBS (70).
